Sheryl Crow duets album details

Sheryl Crow’s forthcoming album of collaborations, THREADS, is available for pre-order now ahead of the Aug. 30 release on The Valory Music Co. Unveiling the cover art and full track list today, she premiered “Still The Good Old Days” featuring Joe Walsh.

During a run of European tour dates, she will perform the song on The Graham Norton Show, airing tonight at 10:40P GMT on BBC One. Crow shared, “’Still The Good Old Days’ totally captures what Joe and I believe about getting older…that life is still fun no matter what stage of life you are at, and that living isn’t just for the young.”

Watch behind-the-scenes footage:

Further elaborating on the project, Crow reflected, “I became inspired to record an album of musical experiences with the legacy artists who inspired me to want to be a great songwriter, musician, and producer. It is a celebration with them, and a tribute to them. Just as importantly, I wanted to work with younger artists on this record, who I believe will pick up the torch and continue to light the way for humanity with their stories and their songs for many years to come. Their music inspires me every day.”

Out now: Chely Wright EP 'Revival'

Over the past decade—on projects like 2010’s Lifted off the Ground, produced by Rodney Crowell, and 2016’s I Am the Rain, produced by Joe Henry—singer-songwriter and LGBT activist Chely Wright had used her songwriting as a salve to soothe the emotional turmoil that accompanied her extraordinary journey from Nashville star to introspective storyteller.

Her latest EP Revival is something different. “The fractured state, the fissures that defined me—that was what my records were about, without my even knowing it,” Wright says. “I’m not as broken as I used to be. I can be so happy right now, and I can sing about being happy. Or I can have a lousy day and I can sing about that. Or I can talk about how hard marriage is. All that’s OK.”

The songs were co-produced and co-written by Jeremy Lister and multi-instrumentalist Dustin Ransom. 

Wright explains that they made a point of not letting her veer too close to the tones and themes of her previous music. “Jeremy and Dustin steered me toward narratives that celebrate this idea of, ‘You’re actually the best you’ve ever been as a human.’ That was news to me,” Wright says. “They were able to see, ‘This is a woman who is ready to celebrate where she is at the age of 48. I loved that.’”

On Wright-Lister songs like the duet “Say the Word” and the title track, Wright said she thought "about past relationships I’ve had, and they will never leave me. It’s something my wife, Lauren, and I talk about a lot.

"Those women will be a part of our current relationship, because they helped form who we are. ‘Revival’ is about forgiveness."

“The song also speaks to a hope that I know I’m missing right now,” Wright adds. “I wake up and I’m feeling hopeless about a lot of things in the world and our government, in our public discourse. I like that that song stakes a claim on humanity and healing.”

About Chely Wright:

Wright emerged on the national country-music scene nearly three decades ago. She earned her first major-label deal in 1993; the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist Award in ’95; and her first Top 40 country hit, “Shut Up and Drive,” in ’97. In 2010, Wright released her Random House memoir, Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer, and forever altered the social landscape of Nashville. In the end, her identity as both an artist who embodies country music’s core values—a dedicated person of faith and a patriot, Wright was playing for the troops long before most artists considered doing it—and a strong gay woman made her an ideal catalyst for changing hearts and minds.

Currently based in New York City, Wright is now able to convey the entirety of her journey on her terms exclusively. “That’s my view now—the long game,” she says. “As far as touring, I love it more than I ever loved touring before. I have a lot of stories to tell.”

Bob Mould to embark on solo electric tour; puts out Buzzcocks cover

Merge Records
Bob Mould announced a new solo electric tour in September to support of his latest full-length solo release Sunshine Rock. In addition to the solo dates there will be one Bob Mould Band appearance at Chicago's Riot Fest.

Sunshine Rock comes from a very personal place for Mould, a place found in Berlin, Germany, where he's spent the majority of the last few years. Here Mould would draw inspiration from the new environments.

"Almost four years ago, I made plans for an extended break," Mould explains. "I started spending time in Berlin in 2015, found an apartment in 2016, and became a resident in 2017. My time in Berlin has been a life changing experience."

Sunshine Rock features the singles "What Do You Want Me To Do", title-track "Sunshine Rock", and the Euro-inspired political song "Lost Faith."

Fans can see behind-the-scenes footage from Mould's recording of the album in the Sunshine Rock Studio Session video here, and watch the Berlin video in which he shares an intimate portrait of life his life in the Berlin here.

Also from the Sunshine Rock sessions, today Mould releases his cover of the punk band Buzzcocks' single "I Don't Mind."

In the video for the track, Mould explains, "Early in my sophomore year, two concerts had a major impact on me. The first was at the Longhorn, with Gang of Four opening for the Buzzcocks. I was a huge fan of the Buzzcocks' approach to pop songwriting and also appreciated the slashing guitar of Gang of Four. I was front and center for the entire Buzzcocks set, studying singer-guitarist Pete Shelley, watching his every motion. Legend has it that the entire band was tripping on LSD that evening - I don't know, but many times during the set, Pete did lean down, off-mic, and shout the chord changes at me. It left a deep impression, and I became an even more intent student of their work."

In addition to new music and touring, Mould recently produced the new Titus Andronicus album coming out on June 21. The band accompanied him on multiple dates for a Sunshine Rock tour this year.
